Jamie Foxx is being tipped to star alongside Lily James in new pic 'Baby Driver'

Jamie Foxx is in talks to star alongside Lily James in 'Baby Driver'.

The 47-year-old singer-turned-actor has reportedly been in negotiations with the film's director, 'Ant-Man' filmmaker Edgar Wright according to a source he confirmed the news to Variety.

The details about 'Django Unchained' star's role have been kept under wraps.

However, it has been revealed that Working Title's Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan will take on producing duties alongside Nira Park who has her own production house, Big Talk Productions.

In terms of financing the flick it will be split equally between MRC and TriStar.

The story itself is about a young driver who relies solely on the beat of his own soundtrack to be the best at what he does and ends up being forced into working under a crime boss.

Production is expected to commence later on in the year with Sony have given the pic a March (17.03.17) release date.

'Baby Driver' will follow Foxx's current role in action thriller 'Sleepless Night'.

Other recent films included a remake of the classic 'Annie' and New Line Cinemas 'Horrible Bosses 2'.

Foxx would star alongside 'Cinderella' star Lily James.

Baby (Elgort) is an Atlanta getaway driver, forced by his boss Doc (Spacey) into doing one last heist. Exuberant crime caper full of stonking music; the story is hardly original, but Wright’s snappy dialogue and zesty direction reinvigorates the genre clichés, and the stars revel in it. Great fun.
